The Mandela Rhodes Scholarship is much more than financial support for your studies.

Our unique leadership development programme will empower you to become a leader who embodies what Nelson Mandela stood for. You will learn what it takes to heal divides and bring opposites together, in order to create a better society for all. You will begin a life-changing leadership journey, and find a community of people who share your passion for the positive transformation of Africa.
